      The Fight

      5 months ago

      It has been a tough weekend for myself, and likely for any other fans out there as well. The news of Monty's passing hits my heart hard. I both loved and respected Monty, and though I didn't fully realize it when he was alive, I see how much I attempted to emulate and replicate his spirit and drive in the things I do. I'm not sure if there is a word in English to describe the feeling you get when your mind is occupied and worried about someone in a situation that you have nothing you can contribute to help. Even worse, when it is someone you feel like you know so well, but then does not know you. I've only met Monty once, at RTX 2012, when he was signing and taking pictures with Geoff, and I got the feeling that he was waiting for the moment that he could return to work. The man was a machine.

      I'm most impressed by the community. This is a group of people who are only connected by their shared love an interest in anything RT. Do you remember the first time you saw Monty's animation? I freaked out when I saw my favorite characters move in a way I knew was not within the game. Or the fight scene between Tex and the boys in Season 8? I have no idea how many times I've watched it, over and over, thinking that it was exactly the way it should have been. it was perfection. Remember when we all saw RWBY for the first time? In that panel, how overcome I was by something I had waited for months for, and it blowing me away. Now this weekend. Utterly helpless, we continued on, most of the community by contributing, some by just getting the word out. We will all see each other in 2015 at RTX, I hope. Today, though, we are all chained together by our combined broken hearts.

      I do hope you rest in peace. but I don't think you want to

      RWBY Alamo Colorado Screening

      9 months ago

      Hey folks! I'm just curious to know if anyone else is going to this event! I am so excited to go, and brining along my lovely cousin and my mama. I had to stop watching RWBY due to school and work and life stuff, and I had plans to marathon it anyway, so this is right up my alley. I have never been to this facility, what's it like? Lemme know if you're going and maybe we can get a drink ;)

      End of July

      11 months ago

      Every now and then, I'll feel weird. Today is day two of that. I feel bad about myself and that I've not accomplished enough in my life yet, and for the most part, that's not true. Sure, comparatively, they certainly have a lot more going on, with kids and such. Then I start thinking about how happy I am...like right now. Talking about it helps, but as the aforementioned friends would normally be the people I would talk to, and they're always so busy, that kind of leaves them out of the loop. It doesn't help that this usually happens after drinking with them. Maybe it's time for another drinking hiatus. My best friend is having her birthday celebration on Friday, and then that kicks off what is usually a very drunk months of August and September. Perhaps I'll skip it? I'm not sure, just thinking out loud.

      Alllllllllllll Right

      1 year ago

      So I didn't stay true to my word last week, but hey, its Tuesday and I'm here to make an update today! The last two weeks have just flown by, and I have been having some fun. I don't know about you all, but its sooooo hot here in Colorado. When I was in Austin, I used the AC like crazy, and I think it spoiled me, I can't seem to stop using it. According to my knowledge (that I got from Tiny Toons) it uses more gas. Also, it seems like a fan is not working so great on my new car, but to be honest, I am so thankful to have him, I'm actually looking forward to taking him in for his first oil change/service. Love that guy.

      Which leads me to my next point/question: Has anyone used the RT decals on their car? How was the experience? I've been putting off putting mine on my hood because I've got to get Will a wash first, and its been raining a lot, too. How would one search for users that have used the decals actually on their paint job, rather than their windows? Hmmm, I think I shall do some more research.

      Posting some RTX pictures tonight as well. I love them, but I'm keeping some of them for me. I am sad I couldn't meet Gus or Burnie again this year. I think I got lucky with meeting Burnie and Geoff and Jason at RTX 2012 That year, Gus was the first staff member I saw, but it was as he was walking somewhere and I was too scared to say anything. I also wanted to respect his time and schedule, he was swamped by a group of fans and definitely tying to get somewhere.

      How's it going for you all? Anyone doing anything cool as we get toward the end of summer?

      Post RTX2014

      1 year ago

      I forgot to make a pre RTX journal this year, so I'll make a post RTX journal this time around. What a gift it was to see everyone and every fan around the convention center. Speaking of gifts, it was my pleasure to take my mom, my sister and my cousin into the city, and ensure they enjoyed their stay at the hotel. I love sharing this experience, this city, and this part of my life with them. My cousin is a young gun though, and couldn't make it to 6th Street. I've purchased way more than I wanted to, but spent less than I meant to. I saw and met people I've never seen or met before, which was lovely. Finally gave out some of my site cards, and hopefully I've made some new site friends that will comment on my stuff. I plan to be more active on the site (I know I say that every year) but this time I mean it! To prove it, I'll set a reminder every Tuesday to get it started, starting next Tuesday, hahaha!

      New semester (ovester) starts, I'll have 3 classes again, and I hope my choice at work for a choice schedule. I really want to start editing, so I'll also need a new computer, in addition to a camera. For someone who likes to live in the past, I sure have a bright future to look forward to.
